, and in washington state, $9.19. "anything under $10 an hour is obscene. it's not enough to live in any city in the u.s." there's now a push to raise the federal minimum wage. "the minimum wage needs to be raised. it hasn't been raised in some time. we should consider indexing it to inflation." in 2004, voters in florida approved indexing the minimum wage to the cost of living. colorado voters did the same thing two years later. they are among ten states where that connection is made and where wages go up january first. in florida, the 12-cent increase, to $7.79 an hour, will benefit 210,000 workers. it'll add $370 to their annual wages and $46.2 million to florida's gdp. still, not enough, according to some. "people who work 40 hours a week need a $10-an-hour minimum wage. this is from a retailer. retail wages stink."
